Good God where so I begin?.........
OK had my locs since Jan 7 of this year. Had them taken Down and redone like 4months into my journey(as they where too big) so i decided to give freeforming a try I have a little over 200locs but my huge question is if its not too much trouble to ask I'd like to know what size beads should I use for my locs that'll fit perfectly? Now the ones in the back are much thicker and gets thinner as it gets too the front ... If anyone has any recommendations on any type of jewelry let me know. Yes I'm terrible at taking pictures but I'll try if more information is needed let me know.... Sooooooo thanks to anyone who reads/responses

Beads have a hole size, measure the width of the dread and get a corresponding bead size, or maybe a mm smaller than the dread.


You dreads look amazing!

with beads, i never measured (or bought any they were all gifts or trades) 

so i just tried the bead on dread after dread till i found 1 it fit on..and stuck

since you have 200 dreads of varying sizes you have many to choose from

so get a bead approximately the size of 1 of the thinner then average 1's then just try it oin dread after dread till it finds its home

Mmkay thanks alot for the info guys

thanks awaseru *takes a bow* they look even better after I wakeup lol

Soaring eagle... How long were your locs when you started adding beads and stuff? I might just buy a few of different sizes and try them. Also not sure if you remember I was the kid constantly asking you questions about locs haha funny how time flys.

Also any idea of how these things will turn out? Are they going in the right direction? In the front My ends are loose will they blunt themselves?

your hair type tends to always blunt themselves

actualy i had 4 or 5 inches of undreaded hair when i added beads  those beads started the 1st dreads super fast

Sounds like one of a kind... You wouldn't happen to still have them would you? How long ago was this?
